If you don't know him, you can't possibly imagine what you are missing.

Finally!!! Here's a picture of those cream cheese filled strawberries I posted a recipe for earlier.

When I saw this picture I was sent back about 68 years. I remember sitting in my grandma Banks' flower garden just like this little girl and seeing all the wonderful blossoms surrounding me. It was like another world.

He's Back!!! The larger bucks usually don't come out until the early morning hours around here but apparently this guy had a craving for the tender grass growing in the ditch across the street. He wasn't the least but offended that I was taking pictures of him as he dined. He has bad manners. He chews with his mouth open. LOL

Sorry about the butt shot!
I wanted to get a better picture to show the size of his rack in compairson to his body. He is a five point and his antlers are still covered with velvet. Come September the velvet will be hanging all over my rhodenderons and other shrubbery as he uses them to rub it off and his antlers will be a bright, shiny mahogany, tempting all the cute little does. Actually they are fairly sharp and can seriously wound rival bucks or even people if they feel their harem is being threatened.
It's interesting to watch the deer walk up to the neighbor's fence and go through the gate. Sort of looks like they are going home. LOL
We have been having some pretty warm days. Right now at 8:10 pm it's still 80 degrees in my house. I have my fan on low to keep me cooled off. I sure like that thing!
My garden is doing great. I have been eating baby beets and beet greens, and potatoes. The green beans are in blossom, and there are baby cukes and tomatoes coming on too. The strawberrys are done and the raspberries are nearly done too. My freezer is well supplied. I picked some raspberries early this morning and sat in my lawn swing and ate a few. The sun was bright and the birds were singing their morning worship. It's a wonderful way to begin a new day.
I pray you are all doing well and keeping cool.
God bless you and yours.

Oooh, those strawberries look absolutely delicious...I must try that.

What a magnificant animal that buck is...he'll have lots of young ladies making doe eyes at him (sorry for the pun, I couldn't resist it).

Your vege garden sounds wonderful...all those lovely goodies growing.

I hope all is well with you and yours.

Is that picture from Robert Louis Stephenson's A CHILD'S GARDEN OF VERSE? It sure reminds me of that book. My childhood seemed to me as if I was sitting in a garden peering out at the world.

Do you realize you haven't posted lately? Missing you.
